Hi David,
in general seems great, but I do have a question:

in privateMethods/TestReflection, what is the goal of this repetition:

void access_priv(TestReflection o) throws Throwable {
*o.getClass()*.getDeclaredMethod("priv_invoke", new 
Class<?>[0]).invoke(o, new Object[0]);
*TestReflection.class*.getDeclaredMethod("priv_invoke", new 
Class<?>[0]).invoke(o, new Object[0]);

I could get this if 'o' had a different class than TestReflection.class 
(e.g. a subclass) - but that doesn't seem to be the case in the test 
(other test methods are similarly behaved). This means that the test is 
basically just making sure that o.getClass() (where o is 
TestReflection.class) and TestReflection.class yields the same Class 
instance. Which should not increase test coverage w.r.t. nestmatest? Am 
I missing something?
